Calpe has long been known as the cycling region par excellence. Many professional cyclists, amateur cyclists and cycling tourists have racked up many cycling kilometers in this region, and there are several good reasons for this.
Why world champions, other cycling idols and recreational cyclists choose to cycle in Calpe:
The climate is undoubtedly the most important reason. Winters are generally mild with average temperatures between 15°C and 20°C, allowing you to cycle all year round without experiencing extreme cold. Additionally, Calpe enjoys a large number of sunshine hours throughout the year. This means you can often enjoy dry and sunny days during your bike rides. The lack of precipitation ensures that you are less bothered by wet roads.
2. Varied terrain
Calpe is located on the Mediterranean coast and offers a diverse landscape for cyclists. You can enjoy beautiful coastlines on the Costa Blanca as well as the surrounding hills and mountains. This makes for varied cycling routes and challenging terrain for different levels of cyclists.
And once you leave the beautiful but busy coastal road, you can enjoy kilometres of traffic-free roads, all in very good to perfect condition. Ideal to work on your fitness in peace and quiet.
4. Good accessibility
Calpe is also easily accessible via Alicante and Valencia airports. Alicante Airport (Alicante-Elche Airport) is the closest airport to Calpe, about 80 kilometers away. Alicante Airport is well connected to many European cities and offers a wide range of domestic and international flights. Valencia Airport (Valencia Airport) is about 135 kilometers away from Calpe. It is another option if you want to fly to Calpe. Like Alicante Airport, Valencia Airport has good connections to several European destinations.
All these assets make Calpe become the mecca of cycling. Loved by all professional teams, but also by many amateur cyclists who come here to prepare their granfondos or other cycling challenges or who just want to enjoy a cycling holiday in ideal conditions.
